Here's the Dahlia bed a month ago. Now mouse over to see what it looks like now.
It's like a jungle! My sweet allysum is finally filling out too. Look at how big those cannas are by the tree! Woo hoo!
I've got Dinnerplate Dahlias, a regular Dahlia, and some Cannas and Callas from Zoe in this bed.
This color is called Procyn. There's tons of buds on it, and it looks soooo gorgeous!
Here's my monster.... it's almost as tall as me! It's called 'Rosella' and it's got a bunch of buds on it too, so I'm looking forward to seeing lots of beautiful blooms in the weeks ahead.
This is the stalk on that monster. I had to put my hand there to show the size. It just amazes me!
This beauty is a 'Seattle'. It's hard to see in my picture, but it has white around the edges.
This one is called 'Jean Marie'.

That's all for now, but I'll be putting up more pics as they bloom. :)
This isn't a dinnerplate, but it's still gorgeous! Zoe gave me this one.
These are cannas from Zoe. I can't believe how huge they've gotten!
Here's a Calla Lily from Zoe. This was taken a few weeks ago.
And this is a small Dahlia...I'm not sure what kind it is, but it's leaves are much darker and more blue than the Dinnerplate Dahlias.
And here's the same plants today. :)
